2018 HEIR APPARENT OAKVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$165.00 $165.00

Heir Apparent’s Oakville Cabernet comes from a secret vineyard in Oakville’s center on Money Road, with notable neighbors Plumpjack, Groth, and Silver Oak. The 2018 release conveys Oakville’s notorious complexity, and it does so with the robust confidence that you’d expect from an Oakville wine.

Oakville’s collaboration of soil, topography, and climate create a viticultural treasure containing the greatest concentration of Napa Valley’s preeminent Cabernet producers. The area’s hallowed ground resulted from collisions first between the North American plate and the Farallon plate, and later the Pacific plate. In Oakville’s center, along the Valley floor, where Heir Apparent sources their grapes, the soils are fluvial, with finely grained loam washed down from floodwaters.

The 2018 vintage was a faultless growing season, virtually uninterrupted by significant heat spikes, providing a prolonged hang-time and allowing the fruit to accumulate intense flavor and complexity. Heir Apparent’s 2018 is more profound, with darker fruits than in years past, along with fine tannins with great length.

Description

2018 HEIR APPARENT OAKVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“This gorgeous wine begins with a nose of puréed blueberry, black raspberries, red plums, vanilla bean, and rose petals. On the palate, it is concentrated and balanced with ripe black cherries, wild red currants, black raspberry jam, glove leather, and tobacco hints, all wrapped in a concentrated, supple mouthfeel. It has a beautiful tension between the fruit and acidity, leaving a long and elegant finish.”
95 Points
“Bright and deep ruby red color. The nose is lush and mixing fresh strawberry jam with intense blueberry and cassis scents. The palate is fresh but full body with a return of ripe black fruit, vanilla spice and vibrant white pepper characters. It is fleshy and polished and a Napa typically long and aromatic finish. This wine will provide instant reward.”
